I'm not sure off hand, but it's sure to run into the thousands!
Do you not think this is a big job?
The taking the car apart is a big enough job in itself, plus fitting everything, and the time to resolve potential for problems. It's just not worth the hassle unless you specifically want to undertake it as a project.

Tomorrow to use a thousand wire ties and neaten up everything. I am saving the MFSW connection for a day when the skin on the back of my hands has healed.
Mikey, you earn every penny on one of these installs. I read every post you have made about ICE installs, and I would have never tackled it without your posts to refer to.
I have spent years working with electronics, computers, etc. Doing the install in not tough, I can do it in ten minutes on a sheet of plywood. Doing it in the car took a two days last weekend, evenings for a week, and most of two days this weekend. A spare car to drive is a must.
A second install would take a lot less time.
Power the car up with the seats removed, and then you have a trip to your friendly dealer.
There is more to this NAV than just a system. There are wheel sensors, gyros and such that have to be fitted along with the the unit, wiring harness and display. Basically, you are not stuffing a Tom Tom into the dash. This is a system that knows which direction you are facing at a standstill and can continue to track you even with a loss of signal. Most of the people that have actually done this swore they would never do it again.
That being said, if you like a challange, go for it.
The other problem is that this system could cost you well into 2 - 3 K (dollars) easily and you can get a much better after market for this amount.
